Startrail, Ayrshire,Scotland

The very long exposure time (over an hour) for this image has resulted in the earths movement creating star trails. The little monument is believed to have once been a windmill and sits in a field. A scene I have driven past on many occasions, I knew it would take a different approach to work as a photographic image. The light on the horizon, resembling the rising sun, is in fact light pollution from nearby streetlights.
